Join Our Twitter Chat About Increasing Hep B Testing

Join us for a Twitter Chat Tuesday, November 19th at 3pm EST to discuss the Know Hepatitis B campaign, and how to increase hepatitis B testing among Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs). Hepatitis B is the leading cause of liver cancer and a major health disparity among AAPIs who are disproportionately impacted by the disease. Although AAPIs account for approximately 5% of the U.S. population, they make up over 50% of Americans with Hepatitis B. The chat is bringing together CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis, Hep B United, Hepatitis B Foundation, Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), and CDC NPIN.

Please join the twitter chat conversation on November 19th and use the #KnowHepB hashtag. Ask questions and let us know what you are doing to decrease the burden of hepatitis B in AAPI communities.
